The Campania region
If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.
The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.
If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.
If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.
An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.
So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.
Santa Maria di Castellabate
Santa Maria di Castellabate was commonly known as Isca delle Chitarre, which represents the current historical centre, exteding between two main squares: Piazza Materazzo, nearby the homonym villa and Piazza Lucia. The most suggestive buildings in town are located in the historical portico's area in front of the pier, called "Porte le Gatte" (transmutation of the name "porticati").
Santa Maria di Castellabate delights any visitor. Its history is shrouded in legend: according to general belief, this was the land of Leucosia, the siren able to cast a spell over anyone.
The glorious past of one of the most suggestive and unforgettable villages of Cilento, has seen parading populations as Normans, Byzantines, Saracens, French, Spanish, as well as local squires and feudatories that conded for it throughout the centuries, not only for the great fortress but even for the beauty of its natural position.
This fishing village lost in a old-time atmosphere, offers a very interesting museum, called "Museo del Mare" (Museum of the Sea), in Villa Matarazzo, where you will see important finds, like the amphora belonging to an ancient ship dated back at the I century BC, and found in 1990.
Castellabate has a spectacular natural setting that offers to lovers of art, nature scholars, sport lovers and simply curious tourists, thousands of opportunities for excursions, culture and entertainment over and above the beauty of sea and beaches.
To complete the picture, the courtesy of the people as well as the flavours and scents of local cuisine are just perfect.
